Terminal Tip: Removing hidden files recursively

If you need to remove all those hidden ‘.files’ from some folder recursively, you can cd into where you want to remove and use the code below:

find . -name ._\* -print0 | xargs -0 rm -f

Raspberry Pi Using Whole SD Card Memory

When you install a Raspbian Operation System on your Raspberry Pi (I’m currently using Minibian) you can notice that it created a file system with very little space, which can be annoying if you are using a bigger SD card.

I only noticed it when I started to apt-get all those packages that I needed, when suddenly got the message:

cannot copy extracted data for './usr/sbin/php5-fpm' to '/usr/sbin/php5-fpm.dpkg-new': failed to write (No space left on device)

Looking into the SD card’s memory I get:

It’s full!!
